Steeple is a fell in the English Lake District. It is situated in the mountainous area between Ennerdale and Wasdale and reaches a height of 819 metres (2687 feet). Steeple is really part of Scoat Fell, being just the rocky northern projection of that fell, however because of its prominent peak and steep crags it has earned the reputation of being a separate fell. Lake District writer Alfred Wainwright rated Steeple and its name very highly saying, “Seen on a map, it commands the eye and quickens the pulse, seen in reality it does the same“.
